TRADEBIT.EXCHANGE is a global “P2P” (peer to peer) exchange platform that allows anyone to directly, safely and privately buy and sell Bitcoin in exchange to any service, good, asset or currency both parties agree to use. This can include national (FIAT) currencies or alternative cryptocurrencies.
We take Liberty and Privacy very seriously as unquestionable values and aim to help reinforcing such values and the free market.
The TRADEBIT.EXCHANGE platform implements a Bitcoin multi-signature escrow wallet and arbitration service to ensure trade integrity without the need for mutual trust since none of the parties, not even TRADEBIT.EXCHANGE, have sole control. Our contract wallet always requires 2 out of 3 signatures to execute transactions.
How to Buy:
Register. It is simple, fast and free. Requirements:
Search the ad with the offer that suits you best.
Clarify your doubts messaging the Seller before clicking “Buy”.

Wait the seller to confirm his acknowledgment in order to initiate the transaction contract and payment window. All confirmations and notifications will be made through e-mail. Be aware of your mail box.
When the transaction starts (Seller confirms acknowledgement) it will be locked up. At this moment your new private keys for signature will be generated – Be very careful, there is no backup of your keys with TRADEBIT.EXCHANGE, save them off-line. This information will be displayed on your browser. Save it with responsibility, TRADEBIT.EXCHANGE does not store or e-mail anything related to your private keys.
Execute the payment as agreed. We recommend:

Avoid trades in person, using remote methods instead, such as bank transfers, Paypal, Stratum, Bktc, Altcoins or similar.
If you need to pay in cash, chose safe public places such as malls or hotel lobbies.
After the payment is done, you can sign before or after the Seller. If you do it before, as soon as the Seller signs, your purchased Bitcoin will be automatically liberated to the wallet address you appoint at your signature moment. You will be notified about the Seller signature and the Bitcoin liberation by e-mail and TRADEBIT.EXCHANGE internal messaging. If you decide to sign after the Seller, the Bitcoin liberation will happen only at this moment.
